Smile Its Your Birthday

Good evening everyone I'm here this evening to launch out latest monthly challenge over at All Dressed Up Stamps Challenge Blog our theme as always is Anything Goes as long as you use an All Dressed Up Stamp in your design. If you have just discovered these stamps and don't have any there are some fab Freebies HERE to get you started.
The prize for the winner is three digital stamps of their choice and we also pick a top three one of whom is asked to be a Guest Designer the following month.

For my Design Team card I used the lovely fun stamp called Smile Its Your Birthday. There are also more fabulous creations from the rest of the Design Team to inspire you all over on the challenge blog
